I stumbled across Jamie Freitag’s book as I was browsing around Amazon looking at dental hygiene textbooks I want to purchase one day (doesn’t every dental hygienist do that?). The title caught my eye- “What they didn’t teach you in delta hygiene school”. I’ve been graduated for a several years, so I was curious if we had learned the same things. Turns out, we have! I felt like I could put myself in her same situations since I lived them over my hygiene career.
This book is an easy read and only takes an hour or so to get through it. It has some great insights for new grads to get the inside scoop on what dental hygiene is. It also highlights how to be a great employee and a great dental hygienist to star a career on the right foot. My only complain was the Kindle format. Unfortunately, when the book opens on the App, the formatting it off and makes reading it difficult at times.
This book would be a perfect gift for a graduating dental hygienist, or even a hygienist that has taken some time off of practice and is getting back into their career.
